I wrote myself in a corner with one of my characters. Without going into too much detail, this guy is sort of a recluse, not by choice. He was cybernetically augmented but escaped and is now in hiding. His only friend is an AI that hangs out in cyberspace (nothing groundbreaking, I know) - the guy yearns for human companionship. What makes it more difficult for the guy is his appearance. Physically he his a specimen to behold except for his cybernetic skull and silver eyes (this stuff is explained in more detail in the story but for simplicity's sake I am dumbing it down). Initially I had the guy only forming online relationships especially with the opposite sex. This is all well and good, but if I want this guy to be less passive, I need him out in the world once in a while. Sure its the near future, etc. etc. but society is not ready for half human/half cyborg...plus the folks who augmented him may end up finding him. How can I get this guy out and about? Wig and sunglasses? (just kidding) I need him able to form friendships and relationships but he always has to move on due to his condition or something...sort of like the old Hulk Tv show with Bill Bixby.
